O is for Ornamental Onion

Butterflies and bees alike
are friends to your purple blooms
Rabbits and deer do not
feel the same at all
They steer clear of your
endearing aroma and taste

A profusion of bright rosy petals
are delicate and tricky
Their aftertaste
lacks much in taste
making this a must walk passer
for all but it’s loving human gardener
